Residents want traffic counter at Puchong Jaya police station to be re-opened

MANY Puchong residents who wanted to pay their traffic summonses at the Puchong Jaya police station recently were caught by surprise when they were informed that they could no longer do so.
The residents were taken aback to see a notice stating that the traffic summons counter had been relocated to the USJ 8 police station in Subang Jaya effective Oct 6.
Inconvenient: Wong pointing to the notice stating that the traffic summons counter at the Puchong Jaya police station had been relocated.

Puchong Jaya resident Ng Lip Sin, wanted to settle her traffic summons at the police station a few days ago but was informed that she had to go all the way to USJ 8
“The summons stated that I can pay at the nearest traffic police counter, but I didn’t know it can’t be paid here. It will be very troublesome for me as I have no idea where the USJ8 police station is,” she said.
Puchong resident Liew Yew Fook said many Puchong folk were caught unaware as they have been regularly carrying out their summons payment and checks at the Puchong Jaya police station.
“I myself only found out about this move on Tuesday, but I have been doing my transactions here for years,” said Liew who is also the Puchong MCA division secretary.
Puchong MCA division chairman Wong Hock Aun said there had been numerous complaints and confusion on the closure of traffic police counters at the Puchong Jaya and Serdang police stations, after the split of the Subang Jaya police district into two.
“We would like to appeal to Bukit Aman and the Selangor CPO to reopen the traffic summons counter at the Puchong Jaya and Serdang police stations for the convenience of Puchong residents,” he said.
“The closure of the traffic summons counters is causing a lot of inconvenience, as we used to even have the option of paying our traffic police summonses at The Mines and IOI shopping malls at one time, and there is no direct public transport service from Puchong Jaya to USJ 8.”
While offenders have the option of settling their summonses online, Wong said the online payment option was not feasible for those who were not Internet-savvy, like senior citizens.
“We would also like to suggest that the police allow traffic summonses to be paid at post offices and for the operating hours of traffic police counters to be extended to night-time for the convenience of the working crowd,” he said.
